Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.

Of the world’s several walnut species, it’s the American black walnut (Juglans nigra) that claims the title of most beautiful. Because of its continuing demand as a classic furniture wood (as well as for its exquisitely figured veneer), black walnut reigns as the nation’s most valuable furniture and cabinet species, even though it represents less than two percent of all commercially available U.S. hardwoods.
Not what it is cracked up to be!
Four purchased lengths to be used as table legs. One of the legs badly warped and torqued required enough removal of wood to be used. Questionable results. I would be skeptical to recommend to a friend to use for exacting projects. Other than that product nice.
not the best, but usable
I bought 4 pieces of this walnut to use to make table legs. One of the pieces was almost completely sap wood. Another was about 50% sap wood. One of the pieces had a significant enough bow to it that by the time I jointed/planed it straight and parallel, I had to scale down the dimensions of the table legs by 1/4" so I could use it. I wish they let you specify that you want all heart wood and that they'd be a little more selective before sending bowed pieces. I normally would buy from a nearby lumber yard; but I had the woodworking bug so badly I didn't want to wait until the weekend to drive to the lumber yard, so I just bought it online. The only time I'll do that again is if the local lumber yard doesn't have what I need.
Walnut 2 x 2's
Used in end grain butcher block cutting board
Wood was straight & nicely grained. Dimensionally accurate, but contained significant color transition down length of piece and last .75" of length unusable for game calls due to chipped/cracked defects and wax (protect end grain?)
good product, will buy again
good straight grain, good color, 4th side not finished. need to remove from two sides to use now it is no longer 2 x 2.
